Shooting on the Woody Harrelson-starring zombie flick Zombieland has wrapped, according to director Ruben Fleischer’s blog. There are also a couple of still images of a deserted, apocalyptic Hollywood, but none of them have zombies, unfortunately. Also, no word yet on whether Woody Harrelson will assault someone else in a misguided publicity stunt/overreaction to paparazzi to mark the end of shooting.

Fox is shuttering Fox Atomic, the studio responsible for its comedy and genre works. Why should you care? Because it leaves the fate of the 28 Months Later, the third Rage-infected zombie movie, in development limbo for the time being.

The canceled ABC TV series Pushing Daisies was kind of a nontraditional zombie tale focused on the cutesy, charming and chaste relationship between the guy who raised the dead with a touch, and the girl he raised from the dead but couldn’t touch again lest she return to the dead for good. Now it’s returning in comic book form from DC and getting in touch with the shambling dead at its core as it introduces a storyline that sees the lead face off against 1,000 reanimated corpses. I always enjoyed the show, despite never loving it, and this wrinkle sounds promising.
